Greetings!  If you haven't visited the Hampton Court cookery blog for a 
while (or never!), you might want to visit it at 
http://tudorcook.blogspot.com/ .  There have been numerous recent posts 
and Richard has taken to using Twitter for short comments during the 
days when the cooks are working in the kitchens.  You don't need to 
subscribe to Twitter to read the comments; they are posted on the side 
of the blog and often give links to photos which are posted on Twitter.

Right now Richard is doing a survey of who is visiting the site, so you 
might want to add your data.  It's one question - When did you first 
visit "Cooking the Books"?

Another interesting URL is
http://www.youtube.com/user/HistoricRoyalPalaces which provides videos 
from all the venues.  There are relatively new ones on Hampton Court and 
the Tower of London.  Many deal with Henry VIII since last year was the 
500th anniversary of his coronation. You can see the titles if you click 
on Uploads and select "See all".

I found the ones on the "Medieval Christmas at the Tower of London" and 
"Tudor Christmas at Hampton Court" to be... interesting.  Reminded me of 
a fancy demo!

Have fun looking at videos and remember to fill in the survey!
